    Years Of Crazy

    My mother in law is a narcissist. She is all about herself, all the time. She only sees her son and her grandkids as trophies. If she spends five minutes talking to her grandson, she makes the whole neighbourhood believe she is the sole source of support for our entire family...

    She Ruined The Birth Of My Daughter And I Can't Get Over It.

    She hates me because she thinks I'm stealing

    her son away from her. But the truth is he doesn't like spending time with her because all she does is abuse him and call his father names. I'm always the one forcing him to go see her and to spend time with her but when he does he comes back hurt and upset.
